With 500GB and Wi-Fi access over 802.11 b/ g/n and a rechargeable battery, this latest member of the GoFlex family provides the ability to carry an entire library of video, music, pictures and documents with you. Devices are wirelessly connected directly to the GoFlex Satellite drive by use of the free GoFlex Media app available now on iTunes, Android Market or a web browser. The drive will be available from the end of October for a retail price of Rs.11,500.
No more running out of space
The GoFlex Satellite is capable of providing hours of entertainment for up to three connections. With a stand-by battery life of up to 25 hours, the lithium polymer battery delivers up to five hours of continuously streaming video. To help with extending battery life, the free GoFlex Media App provides a progressive download feature, which temporarily loads the video on to the Android device it is being streamed to, allowing the drive to go into stand-by mode. GoFlex Satellite mobile storage wirelessly serves up media content as a local attached storage for up to three devices at the same time. The included Media Sync software makes grabbing media from a Windows PC or Mac OS X computer easy. It can be easily configured to only place files on the drive that are compatible with your iOS or Android device. Even music and videos purchased through iTunes can be loaded to the GoFlex Satellite drive and will play on all authorized devices. The drive can alternately connect to your PC via USB 3.0 for quickly dumping the files on to it.
